Infancy and Early Development - ECHE118

This unit focuses on the development of infants and young children aged 0-3 years within the Australian social context. Theories and research, which attempts to describe and explain early childhood development and individual differences are critically examined. Implications for the prenatal, cognitive, social/emotional, language and motor development during the first three years of life are also examined. Teacher Education Students are encouraged to make links between content, research, to observations and experiences with infants and very young children within early childhood settings.
